FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 4 March 2014, New York, NY After Six Tuxedo, now owned and operated by The Dessy Group, is pleased to announce the introduction of its first women's tuxedo for the fall 2014 bridal season.

The Marlowe tuxedo is made from luxurious stretch wool (96% wool, 4% lycra) imported from Lanificio Di Tollegno, one of the oldest mills in Italy. The two-piece tuxedo is a traditional style reimaged for women and redefined with updated elements. The fitted tuxedo jacket features a satin peak lapel, single satin covered button fastening, two satin trimmed welt pockets, a welt breast pocket and single back vent. The classic tuxedo pant is slim fit with a satin stripe along each leg, side slash pockets and a satin waistband. The pant sits slightly below the waist and has a 32 1/4" inseam, to allow for alterations.

“Since we acquired After Six Tuxedo, we have had quite a lot of feedback indicating a demand for a women's tux. The brand has always been known as a defining staple of the tuxedo industry, The Dessy Group is a top resource in bridal, so it made perfect sense for us to leverage our experience in women's formalwear and develop this new tuxedo style.” says Alan Dessy, CEO of The Dessy Group and After Six.

The After Six women's tuxedo will be available starting June 1st, 2014 on Dessy.com. Jacket and trouser sizing ranges from 0 – 18W, are sold separately and retail for $375 and $115 respectively.
